Winter break is finally here. Year-end finals are done and the holidays are upon us. Time to give our four legged competitors a well deserved break. A question we often hear from many horse owners is, “Do you need to keep your horse on supplements even when they are not working?” A good question that can be answered with another question, “Why do you have them on the supplements in the first place?”
It is tempting to take our horses off their supplements while they are on break. However, we must remember why they are on them in the first place. These are not drugs, they are nutritional components that feed health! Removing the nutrition removes the benefits that build upon its self with time on the supplement.
Generally speaking if you have a horse with pre-existing issues it is always better to keep them on their supportive nutritional supplements even while on break. Remember a sound horse is a happy horse!
